The Russian Foreign Ministry sees the decision to allow Ukraine and Moldova to join the EU as anti-Moscow policies . The European Union is thus continuing its line of penetrating the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) for the purpose of containing Russia, spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in Moscow.

In Georgia on the Black Sea, tens of thousands of people took to the streets during the night for the South Caucasus republic to join the EU. In the capital, Tbilisi, they also demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Irakli Gharibaschvili. His government has not done enough to ensure that Georgia becomes a candidate for EU membership.

There were conflicting reports about the situation in Lysychansk on the western bank of the Seversky Donets River. The Russian Ministry of Defense announced that Russian troops had blocked the city from the south. The defensive positions of Ukrainian troops had been breached. The General Staff of the Ukrainian Army had previously spoken of Russian air strikes on Lysychansk. The information is difficult or impossible to independently verify.

A nationwide air alert was triggered again in Ukraine. This emerged from a corresponding map of the situation. As reported by the Ukrainian news site 24tv, there were reports of explosions, including from Zaporizhia in the southeast.

Oleksiy Arestovych, an adviser to the Ukrainian president, does not expect Russian troops to take over the entire Donetsk region. To do this, four cities would have to be conquered, he told the portal The Slovjansk-Kramatorsk conurbation, where a good half a million people lived before the war, is considered to be particularly well fortified. The headquarters of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the Donbass region is located there.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken pledged further military aid from his country to Ukraine. "You fight not only for yourself, but for all of us," said Blinken in Berlin. Since the beginning of the war, his country has provided Ukraine with defense aid worth around 6.1 billion US dollars. "We will continue this as long as it lasts," he said.
